“No one wants to talk about God,” he says, and something in my heart breaks both for him and the world into which he was born. In a culture obsessed with knowing the latest celebrity gossip, taking the perfect selfie, and living in the moment instead of for the future, it’s no wonder that Jesus is a tough topic transition for his twenty-something crowd.
Intellectual by nature, I know he can discuss theology with insight and intelligence, but I worry that this floundering in the shallow end of the conversational pool reflects the current depth of his thoughts and relationship with God.

You can articulate your faith as the greatest theologian, but it means nothing if it’s only head knowledge and not heart knowledge.
